Witcher 3 delay does not affect Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski says development on Cyberpunk 2077 is "not really affected" by recent delay of fantasy role-playing game.
[UPDATE and CORRECTION] An earlier version of this story stated that Cyberpunk 2077 is officially confirmed for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. GameSpot regrets the error.
The original story is below.
The delay of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC will not materially affect development on CD Projekt Red's other major role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077, CEO of the Polish studio Marcin Iwinski has said.
"Cyberpunk 2077 is developed by a separate team within CD Projekt Red, so the development of Cyberpunk 2077 is not really affected," Iwinski told GameSpot today. Cyberpunk 2077 is "probably" coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
But that's not the full story. Because The Witcher 3 is such a large project, some Cyberpunk 2077 developers have moved over to The Witcher team to help get the product out the door.
"In order to ship a huge RPG we do use help of certain team members between teams. It works this way between Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3," he said.
These developers bounce between teams to finalize "key" elements and features, he said. This is a standard development practice and The Witcher 3's delay is not going to impact in any significant way development on Cyberpunk 2077. "So no harm done here," he explained.
"We are working hard to deliver an outstanding RPG and rest assured, that all the learnings on The Witcher 3 are being applied to the Cyberpunk 2077 development," Iwinski said.
The Witcher 3 was expected to launch this fall, but CD Projekt Red delayed the game yesterday to February 2015 so the team could achieve a level of quality that will set it apart from other role-playing games. Meanwhile, CD Projekt Red has not announced a release date of any kind for Cyberpunk 2077, which the studio calls a "true RPG."
